My Stadium Journey story on Major League Soccer heading to Atlanta, the stadium they'll play at and a budding rivalry with the Columbus Crew(fans).

Considering what it used to look like, i'm still amazed whenever I see Cincinnati's Washington Park. The streetcar will eventually run on the street in the background.

i'm going to mess around with the free version later, but if it works out i'll gladly pay for the pro version, just to support the developer(his Tweet Lanes app was great).
 
On Link Bubble's price

A few quick thoughts for those seemingly disappointed by Link Bubble Pro's $4.99 price:
* I am not a multi-billion dollar company like Google or Facebook that provides free services in exchange for data that can sold to advertisers. Nor am I part of a company that has raised millions through venture capital. 
* Like you, I need a salary to survive. I have a family, mortgage, need to eat, and all that mundane stuff. Writing apps and selling them on the Play Store is my full time job, and my means of earning this salary.
* I decided long ago to launch at $4.99. Link Bubble's price was not affected at all by my applying for a patent on the app. I'm not 'passing the entire cost down to the consumer'. Instead, applying for the patent meant I'm deferring the point where Link Bubble becomes a positive earner (assuming it sells enough to recoup of course).
* I'm not begging for money out front of a homeless shelter. I'm trying to build applications that people who already own expensive smartphones and/or tablets are excited to use and hopefully buy.
* I feel like Link Bubble is as innovative as something you might expect from a team at Google or Facebook. I feel like a conversation could be had that Link Bubble does more to further the Android experience than most apps I've seen. Link Bubble saves me minutes a day, every day. Is it so unreasonable that such innovation would be rewarded with a sub-$5 price? (again, keeping in mind I don't use your usage habits to further an advertising empire)
* Link Bubble has launched with a free component that enables you to evaluate whether the app suits your needs and is something you deem worthy of buying.
* Frankly, I feel like Link Bubble is worth more than $4.99. Desktop utilities routinely cost $20+. But this is the price I've settled on as something a majority are willing to accept for a mobile app.
* I continue to feel that by and large, good apps represent tremendous value for money: https://plus.google.com/+ChrisLacy/posts/YAEA1VHHVpk
* I don't have any plans to put the Pro version on sale.
* When you buy my apps, you support me, and enable me to both make my existing apps better and write new ones.
* As a consumer of apps myself, I really think it's worth thinking on the point raised in the tweet below. 

To those that have supported me and purchased Link Bubble Pro, I offer you my thanks. To those who think $5 is too expensive, I hope both hope you enjoy using the free version, and that in time you'll recognize the value for money I've worked so hard to create with the app :)

Another week-in-review for Stadium Journey. Dinosaurs throwing out first pitches, Cleveland debates Wahoo and the sin tax that built their stadiums, and an MLB exec's proposal for 'fixing' baseball.

From the mural on the back of Cincinnati's PBS station. Everyone's singing but Mr. Redlegs looks like he's on drugs.

It takes some getting used to but there are a lot of themes to try. There's another app coming which will change your screens due to location(so work has a different theme an apps from home, etc). Can't remember the name at the moment.

The point of this Guardian post is 'Babymetal's music is better than it has any right to be'. I have to agree, the overt pop melodies work surprisingly well with the riffs, double bass, etc. http://www.theguardian.com/music/musicblog/2014/mar/13/babymetal-craze-japan-rockers-knee-socks
